How do these courses compare to the ones offered by Edx or Coursera?

If something is ever 99% off, it should just be free.

In fact, it is. www.youtube.com

lmao 99% off

Spoiler alert: no employer will be impressed by your "excel certification" - if Excel is actually mission critical they will make you do something with it during the hiring process

Call me shallow...but I don't trust the name "By 1337 Institute of Technology"

Plus, I doubt it's going to teach anything advance (VBA, multi-datasource/sync with SQL/Access/ODBC)

Does Microsoft offer any sort of certification for this stuff? Excel can get hella complicated, with pivottables & vlookups, etc. If I was hiring an accountant and saw they had an official Microsoft cert for something, I'd probably actually notice.

Those functions are basic knowledge I'd expect. So much more uncommonly used functions. Knowing it exist and knowing how to use multiple functions is 'hardest' part of excel

I took the certification exam about 14 years ago. It was pretty intense because there was a time limit. I got stuck on a question, ran out of time, and didn't finish.
Presumably, that type of exam exam still continues. If so, I would absolutely dive into the bundle before attempting the exam that I took.
